STL Image Gallery Right Here!

STL Photo Propaganda Collection!

Hey Comrades,

Since I’m taking a break at STL until the beginning of 2020, I am going to start up the image gallery posts again. So every Wednesday and Friday I’ll be uploading 5 new images onto a STL Google Photos page to share.

I know that with these posts were very popular in the past and you may have gone back to earlier posts to find the old images and seen the uploaded images already. But this is going to be a whole new project and, therefore, I will not refrain from posting images that have already posted before. It just takes too much time to sort everything.

So I hope you enjoy them and find good use for them. Thank you!

In Solidarity,

STL On Instagram!

Though on hiatus until the new year, the STL Instagram account will still be updated as usual. Check it out! @sparkingthe

Short Hiatus

Comrades, with the still recent relaunch of Sparking The Left I hate to inform you that I will be taking a further break from posting new material.

I am training at a new job that is turning out to be much more difficult than I planned (work is violence!). So I cannot work on both at this time.

I’ll be returning on Jan. 1st and I cannot wait until that date.

In Solidarity,

A Dialogue: Media Bias

What is the media: The main means of mass communication (broadcasting, publishing, and the Internet) regarded collectively.

What is the purpose of the media: To serve as the fifth estate holding our politicians’ and other elites’ feet to the fire in the interest of plebeian citizens by fact checking and reporting the truth when communicating stories and analysis.

What is the media used for: Our mainstream network and cable news outlets, along with countless websites, serve the interests of the 1% by shining the “truth” through a curved capitalist lens.

But how?: Through the overtones and undertones expressed in every word and image.

So the media “message” is politically bent?: Of course. It serves the interest of the rich and powerful who own mass media.

How does it do this? It all looks on the up-an-up to me: Consider Gramsci’s cultural hegemony concept, in it’s best description:

“the ‘spontaneous’ consent given by the great masses of the population to the general direction imposed on social life by the dominant fundamental group; this consent is ‘historically’ caused by the prestige (and consequent confidence) which the dominant group enjoys because of its position and function in the world of production.”

Can we escape this media influence?: Of course not. We politically and culturally swim in it’s soup.

How can we change this?: If we recognize that there is a opaque pane in front of the truth.

Well, how do we get everyone else to see the truth: Organize, Comrade. Organize…

NYT: Families Hurt by Unstable Work Hours for Mothers

Short post today: Here’s a great article from the NYT’s The Upshot series from Oct. 16th that further shows how work is violence for the American family. It gives some great research links supporting the fact that unpredictable work hours for female minorities is having a largely negative affect on working mothers and their children; especially for single mothers. Please read and leave some comments for discussion!
